AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW Concerns to include Credence claims and managing ACCC risks

FoodLegal’s ‘Credence claims and managing ACCC risks’ workshop will include best practices to identify when and how a non-compliance risk exists in any food marketing campaign under Australian Consumer Law legislation and what options can be considered.

This course is concerned with the many challenges to marketing professionals and product developers working in the food industry. It provides a multitude of  examples and illustrations showing marketing non-compliance risks in relation to food marketing, and food claims, and food descriptors, and campaigns that have not thought about legal consequences. The course is intended to help participants identify the risks and to know when Australian Consumer Law issues are likely to arise. It will explain when wording used in many marketing claims may need to be modified, and associated issues such as substantiation of claims and principles to follow in marketing, packaging, social media and other promotional activities.
